Seattle pseudo-celebrity Nick Starr (real name Nicholas Schuler) has found himself the target of internet backlash after he suggested a cafe employee be fired over a Google Glass dispute.
Seattle’s Lost Lake restaurant enacted a policy in March that asked customers not to wear Google Glass devices out of concerns for the privacy of their customers.
When a restaurant employee asked Schuler to remove his device last week, the 20-something technophile demanded to know why the business forbade the forehead computer while encouraging customers to take Instagram photos of their food.
Schuler ranted about the experience on Facebook, demanding an apology and calling on the unidentified employee to be fired.
The restaurant shot back with a Facebook posting of their own:
"And if we ask you to leave, for God’s sake, don’t start yelling about your "rights". Just shut up and get out before you make things worse," the restaurant wrote.
This is, apparently, not the first time Schuler has faced anti-Glass sentiment. Schuler claims he is in therapy due to “Google Glass tension at work.”

It’s pretty sad when you can’t go anywhere without the security of technology in your hands. People don’t even say hello, look at each other or even hold a door open for others. Instead of conversing while waiting in lines they instead hold their phones for dear life and avoid all human contact.
